Ball movement and 30-2 runs. That’s a great recipe for blow out wins. 11 more to go.

Everyone from Jersey is BOE. BITCHES OVER ERRRRYTHANNGGG. Fuck that MOB shit.
Sike nah, we get money in Jersey too. But there’s no bitch in the world that can turn down a Jersey swag homie. JR and I are living proof.
ESPN Sources report that J.R. Smith has been named 6th Man of the Year. Via
Look. Anyone who knows Wave Bandana knows that J.R. Smith is my favorite player in all of basketball. He’s not only my favorite current player, but he is my favorite player of ALL TIME. He is literally my favorite player to ever play the game of basketball. If you put a gun to my head, and told me to name the 2 BEST players to ever play the game, I would look dead into your eyes, spit in your face, and then say “JR #1, Michael #2″. Then I would smile while you pulled the trigger because I know right before I died I said the realest shit I ever spoke.
So maybe I’m a little biased when it comes to my man Earl, but this is real Jersey pride shit right here. They say JR is possibly the king of “irrational confidence guys”. Well then, I’m the king of “irrational confidence fans”.
This is the best thing that has happened to me in a while. Some fucking league recognition. Just because I’m an irrational confidence fan that seemingly ignores all basic logic and common sense, doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt when homies laugh in my face when I say everything I just said above (which I say literally every time he scores a bucket).
But now my argument has some ammo. Not enough to support my insane claims, but it’s a start. This should be the fucking MVP award though. And I’m not crazy. Hear me out:
In 2004 JR bailed on college to go straight to the NBA. This was understandable since he was NBA ready as a junior in high school and he also shared Mcdonald’s All American MVP honors with Dwight Howard. Dwight was one of the most hyped up players coming out of High School, so you know he had to be doing wild shit for the committee to be forced to split honors with him.
Had JR not skipped college, he would have gone to UNC where he verbally committed. UNC won the National Championship WITHOUT JR that same year. He would have won and UNC would have been undefeated. JR would without question would have been the #1 Overall draft pick.
When you are the the #1 overall pick, you can get away with doing retarded shit. They let you take that insane fadeaway 3 point shot from 2 steps in from half court. They give you confidence and time to grow. They don’t pull you out of the game every time you mess up. They support you. That support and offensive freedom goes a long way in a player’s development. Take a look at D. Rose’s rookie year. He was putting up some bullshit sometimes but would never get pulled. When JR did that his ass was on the bench for the rest of the game.
There are endless players that “coulda, woulda, shoulda”. This debate is endless. But what is rare about this istuation is it just comes from simple belief in a dude. There was no devastating injury. There was no career ending off the court issue. He just won the 6th Man of the year award and he almsot wasn’t resigned this year. If he had the support behind him and the minuetes, this shit could have been an MVP trophy.
I’ll take this shit though.
PS – Can we fucking pay this dude finally? I could make the case that based on his salary + production he could honestly be the MOST VALUABLE player in the NBA from a financial standpoint.
I’m not gonna say it either fam.
PS. Yea I’m black and don’t watch Hockey but I did play NHL Live 02 and I do watch Olympics + Postseason Hockey… and I own MSG stock so let’s fucking gooooooooo Rangers.
New York’s newest basketball sensation spends most nights on a couch in a one-bedroom apartment on the Lower East Side. The housing choice is understandable once you get to know Jeremy Lin.
He is a Harvard graduate playing in the National Basketball Association. He is an Asian-American in a league devoid of them, which makes him doubly anomalous. No team drafted Lin in 2010. Two teams cut him in December, before the Knicks picked him up.
His contract, potentially worth nearly $800,000, was not even guaranteed until Tuesday afternoon. So for the past six weeks, Lin, 23, has been sleeping in his brother Josh’s living room, waiting for clarity and career security.
“He has his own couch,” Josh Lin, a New York Universitydental student, said cheerfully.
How much of an asshole does this make Melo, Amare, Chandler, and all those other overpaid pieces of shit look? This exemplifies everything the Knicks are lacking right now; HEART.
I don’t mind if the Knicks lose games. They haven’t had time to gel, and they don’t have a point guard (before Lin-Sanity). But it’s the way they lose games. I didn’t realize it until I went to the Suns/Knicks games a few weeks ago. 38 year old, midget white dude Steve Nash carved them the fuck up. This mugs is 38 and he played harder and longer than any Knick starter. He is clearly slower than his prime, but he plays with motherfuckin heart (and makes everyone around him better, even bum ass Hakim Warrick).
At the game, I realized just how little effort they play with. It is unbelievable. I’ve never seen a group of guys play like that.
It was the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen in my entire life. As a person who dedicated most of their life to this game, I took the effort displayed that night as a personal insult. The Garden is the best place in the entire world to play basketball. THE ENTIRE WORLD. There is no disputing that. For you to not to fly out like a bat outta hell, giving 100% effort and realizing how fucking blessed you are every single second, it’s not only insulting to the city and the fans, but it’s insulting to the game and everyone that is a part of it.
It’s incomprehensible. I’m not quitting on them yet, but it’s alarming and disrespectful. You know that famous picture of MJ hugging the trophy crying? A few others like Kobe had had moments like that. They are literally holding the trophy with such passion, you can feel this is everything they’ve ever wanted. It radiates through the TV, it gives you chills. I’m sorry I just cant picture Melo or Amare clutching the trophy for dear life crying their eyes out. Can you?
That’s the kind of player I want on my team.
Lin knows what I’m talking about.
So @fienDJota hit the chat last night with this beauty of a video. I saw a GIF of this yesterday but didn’t realize how hysterical it was due to a fucking terrible day of work. Please watch this on repeat to see three of the funniest things in a :19 second span. Terrrrrrrible hook shot (even though it was a nice move) straight into this fiend JaVale SPRINTINGGGG down the court like he saw a bad bitch in the front row he’s tryna impress, then he sprints back, doesn’t set a screen and dives to the cup to catch the worst alley in the world. Fucking amazing. I hope we don’t lose to these fiends tonight.
PS. This is the textbook I fucked up so I’m gonna have to do something to distract everyone from the terrible airball/brick I just shot. Usually people will feign injury COUGH COUGH VINCE CARTER COUGH COUGH but JaVale took it to the next level with this. I’ve never seen some shit like this in my life.
PPS. CHI TOWN STAND UP
PPPS. How much does this fiend mook on a weekly basis?
PPPPS. You were right Ms. McGee, JaVale is special
PPPPPS. Toney Douglas and Renaldo Balkman + 2 2nd round picks for McGee?
This has to be one of @oakshades best calls ever. This idiot hails Jeremy Lin as the Asian Steve Nash hours before tip off…next thing I knew I was watching Asian Steve Nash.
I’m gonna leave the rest of the comments for oaks, he was actually at the game. But if you missed it here are the highlights.
Crazy that with all the ‘sources’ speculating on the NBA coming back, one person had a legit blood relative tell him what was good and that person was @wave_bandana . Nice to know that hoops will be back dominating the Top 10 and that us Knick fans will finally be able to watch a good team play in MSG. (MY MOTHERFUCKING STOCK BETTER START CLIMBING CAUSE I ATE SHIT WITH THAT PURCHASE) That being said, what do the Knicks do now? Vegas has a prop bet saying CP3 will be a Knick by Christmas. <=== WHOA Crazy if it happens. LOWKEY THOOOOOOOOO What I want to see is us play this year out with our squad, watch Iman Shumpert turn out to be a steal… PLEASE LORD JESUS TEBOW MAKE IMAN SHUMPERT BE A STEAL… and sign DWIGHT MUFUCCKIN HOWARD. Amare gets to play the SF/PF hybrid he wants to be, Melo gets to be the game closer and creator off the dribble, Dwight gets to be the best defensive player ever and gets to DUNK THE MOTHERFUCKING BALL EVERY OTHER POSSESSION. Dwight takes our biggest weakness and makes us the best rebounding/paint clogging team in the league just by putting on that #12. MAKE IT HAPPEN TEBOW!!!
Let’s play a game called “How Many Times Does A Knick End Up In This Dunk Real?” I haven’t watched yet but I’m going to guess a minimum of 8 different dunks against the Knicks.
PS. Shouts to @officiallyzay
RIP the 2011 NBA Season.
RIP NBA on NBC
